Gor Mahia duo Karim Nizigimana and Francis Mustafa met Arsenal and Gabon goal poacher Pierre Emmerick Aubameyang in Libreville, Gabon Saturday.
Karim skippered Burundi’s national team, the Swallows, while Aubameyang wore the armband for the Black Panthers of Gabon as the two nations clashed in the 2019 Afcon qualifiers.
Mustafa who recently joined Gor Mahia was a second half substitute in the game that ended in a 1-1 draw at Stade L’imite, Libreville, Gabon.
Soke City’s Saido Berahino opened the scoring for the visitors but Aubameyang saved the home side the blushes with the leveler deep in second half.
Gor Mahia is the most represented KPL club during the current international break with three players turning out for Kenya’s Harambee Stars and two for Burundi for a total of five.
Philemon Otieno, Francis Kahata and Joash Onyango played in Kenya’s historic 1-0 win over Ghana at the Kasarani Stadium Saturday.
Rwandan striker Jacques Tuyisenge who has enjoyed a good season with K’Ogalo will unfortunately miss Amavubi’s clash with Cote d’Ivoire later today in Kigali as he is injured.
